Hundreds of people in Quxu county in Lhasa, capital of the Tibet autonomous region, have relocated to a new settlement provided by the government under a poverty alleviation project. The new community, named Sanyou village, was built in four months from scratch.

In July, some 760 villagers from various places, especially remote mountain areas, started to move in.

The new village is located next to the county's railway station and a national highway. A clinic that has equipment for remote medical consultations has also been built.

Some shops and supporting facilities have also been constructed by the local government. The villagers are allowed to rent the shops at low rates.

"Our life is much more convenient. I am happy about our new home here," says Gesang, a 35-year-old resident.
